October 23, 2012, 10:41 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Back for its seventh innings, the London Children's Film Festival is a weeklong event aimed at children of all ages interested in the movie-making process. Hosted by the Barbican, children will not only be able to watch short and feature films, new and old, they'll be able to participate in workshops ranging from the art of filming to how to steal the limelight. For children over 10 years there's even the opportunity to make their own film in a day and take home a copy on DVD to show all the family.
Everything is interactive, educational and fun and prices are very reasonable. Tickets for film screenings costs £5 and workshops are priced between £2 and £5 each. Dates have yet to be confirmed, but the London Children's Film Festival will take place sometime in November. More information can be found on LondonTown.com, the number one Internet site for London .
